I'm curious as to what about missing details makes a question "off-topic"? I just don't see the logic in calling a poor quality question (doesn't have what the asker thinks, etc.) off-topic. If I was new to the site and my question got closed from being off-topic because I asked the question badly (which is probably the most common occurrence of such closings), I would certainly be confused.
